Not one of John Liu's best
11 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

John Liu is one of the great kickers and some of the kicks here are amazing as are his splits (before van Damme made them his trade mark). The Korean locations are stunning but the plot is only average and the fights, though frequent, stylistic rather than in any way realistic. The madness is an interesting twist but John Liu only has a limited dramatic range and the 'cure' happens suddenly and with little explanation. The final fights are protracted and fairly bloody. The sub-plot with Tong Bo Wan (Mar's wife) doesn't really lead anywhere and though beautiful, acting was not her strong point. On my Vengeance DVD her voice is often hard to hear and the print is not a good one with significant faults at times. The case says there is a bonus John Liu fight which there isn't - this seemed to get replaced with a short but interesting interview with Philip Ko at some stage. As the other comment mentions there is some fun to be had spotting where the soundtrack is copied from.
